The Mansfield Tigers football team recently held their donation telethon and as hoped for, it was another success. The community rallied BIG TIME behind the Red Tigers in support by raising $2200 so far for much-needed practice and game equipment. The donation window is open until next week.
Mansfield Head Coach Craig Bentley had this to say about the event, “Fundraising is so vital to our program. We use the fundraiser funds for equipment, player gear, and multiple other needs for our program and players. We try to provide our players with the very best of everything from gear to equipment and it’s our goal that our players never have to pay for anything within our program. Fundraisers go a long way in making all that possible and we are so thankful to our community for the support they constantly show to our kids and program.”
The town of Mansfield and the community surrounding it are showing the Tigers that they have their back. When a community backs its sports programs, the success is seen on and off the field of play. It builds confidence in players on the field and lets them know that they are an important piece to the community.
